• Dr. Barbara Portwood


    Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! As we begin the school year, I am pleased to have this opportunity to welcome you. I look forward to the upcoming school year, building upon the skills students have mastered, and helping students accomplish new challenges in English Language Arts.  I am here to provide additional support and resources and to help students achieve their educational goals for the school year. A positive learning experience is built on a collaborative effort among parents, students, and teachers, and I welcome your questions and concerns as the year progresses. It is important that we work together as a team to help everyone be successful.  This year promises to bring an amazing wealth of new methods of learning on a variety of technology-inspired platforms. Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
